17038Re: [SCA Newcomers] Pirates
- Mar 9, 2013There are plenty of sea personalities in the SCA. We do have rapiers and
such as well.
But as it has been pointed out the swashbuckling pirates of yore, aren't
yore enough to be in the time period of the SCA. Pirates have been around
just about three seconds less than shipping has. The ancient phoenicians
had to deal with them and so has everyone else ever since. There are even
some notable female pirates in the SCA time period. I know a couple of
people who have even received letters of marque from their crown, heck I
helped with the wording and writing of one of them!
So if you are willing to adjust your calendar back 100 years-ish to a less
swashing time period you are most welcome to come and play with us.
Permission granted to come aboard if ye be friend, meet the point of my
sword if ye be foe, and if you are here to get the tax on the cargo I
carry, you will find the bales of wool over there, no we haven't heard a
thing about treasure being snuck in, we'll sure keep an ear out for you...
